Girl Talk Thursday (GTT): Pet Peeves

Oh HO BOY, do I have pet peeves.


People who don’t know the difference between LOSE and LOOSE.

People who really don’t know the difference between:

You’re going to have to work harder at your grammar if your goal is to impress me:

It takes a lot to get me riled up but this error could get me started:

In addition: people who curse WAAAAAY too much on either their blogs and/or Twitter.

How much do you cuss on Twitter?

I mean come on, why? Is it to impress us? Are you trying to a bad ass? Do you think people like a lot of cursing? Seriously, WHY?

MY theory? Because you may not be all that interesting without the colorful language?

Hey, it’s just a theory. *shrug*

And finally …

Even though I’m a writer, that I graduated with a professional writing degree, DOESN’T mean I don’t make mistakes. I will, occasionally, let a word slip by me and NOT fix it. (Though it’s unconscious because I’m pretty anal when it comes to editing myself … and others, apparently).

See? Told you.

So please, take a few minutes and make sure you’re typing the correct word/usage because when you don’t? People think you’re an idiot.

  1. LOL, great post! We have a lot of the same peeves. I think I tend to err on the alot/a lot one some though, just from typing on my blog post as I’m thinking.

    Oh, and thanks for posting the links, I went and took both quizzes and scored identically to you! Cuss free and 95% on spelling. Hope you don’t mind, but I think I’ll steal these and post on my blog too, such cute graphics 🙂

    Have a great day, Karen!
